And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:18

I am in Cambodia right now; joining with the many other Grace teams that are out serving around the world this month. As we seek to serve and tell others about Christ there is a key point to who we are that often sets us apart from the many other teams we meet. Our goal is not evangelism alone. Don’t get me wrong. We want people to come to know Christ as their savior, but we are not aiming for belief alone; we are aiming for disciples.

Jesus did many amazing things as He walked the earth. He healed people, preached to the crowds, and changed individual lives through His grace. Those were all impressive things, but it was His disciples that he trusted to do the “greater things”. As a part of the Grace family of churches, we desire to not only see people’s lives impacted but to see them impact others. It has been that way from the start and continues to be a distinctive. I might be a little jet-lagged on Sunday, but I am so honored to be back at Snellville to teach on We are Disciples.
